    08/11/16DBKeanu NealTorsoPROBABLENeal (torso) will practice "in some fashion" Sunday according to head coach Dan Quinn.

    The rookie safety out of Florida suffered a slight strain in his torso during practice earlier this week, and the Falcons are taking their time bringing him back. Neal was the 17th pick in the 2016 NFL Draft and will be the favorite to start at strong safety for the Falcons this season given that his torso injury is nothing serious.

    08/11/16TELevine ToiloloHandPROBABLEToilolo (hand) caught one pass for 13 yards on two targets in Thursday's preseason game against the Browns.

    Jacob Tamme got the start, but Toilolo and Austin Hooper also got some snaps with the first-team offense. Each player managed just one catch, and while Tamme appears to have an early advantage, there's still time for Toilolo or Hooper to make a move before Week 1. Regardless, the Atlanta tight ends probably won't be a big part of the team's passing game this season.

    08/11/16RBTerron WardAnkleQUESTIONABLEWard (ankle) came out late, but managed to participate in some of Tuesday's practice, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

    Ward has missed just over a week since injuring his ankle, but he appears to be nearing a return. His limited participation is a good sign, and he did say that it was getting better day-by-day. When he returns, he'll look to continue to push Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman for reps and carries in both the preseason and regular season.

    04/27/16DBJalen CollinsSuspensionSUSPENDCollins has been suspended for the first four games of the upcoming season for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

    Collins is still eligible to partake in all offseason and preseason activities, but will have to miss the first quarter of the regular season. A second round selection last year, Collins was hoping to carve out a larger role in the Falcons' secondary this term, and although he very well may still, his absence will open opportunities for his teammates to begin the campaign.

    Green Bay Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    08/18/16WRJordy NelsonKneePROBABLENelson (knee) will go through individual drills at Monday's practice, according to coach Mike McCarthy.

    Nelson was activated from the PUP list last week and will return to practice on an individual level Monday. Green Bay's top receiver also got in a pregame workout prior to Thursday's exhibition against the Raiders, so another day of action Monday is a good sign for all parties involved. While it's unclear when Nelson will be able to join team drills, Monday's return to the practice field is obviously encouraging.

    08/15/16WRJeff JanisHandQUESTIONABLEJanis (hand) had surgery on his fractured hand and will be out for at least 4-6 weeks, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.

    Janis fractured his hand during Friday's preseason opener against the Browns and was originally considered week-to-week. Now that he's been ruled out for at least a month, it'll be tough for him to survive the final roster cuts heading into the regular season. Along with Jared Abbrederis and Trevor Davis, Janis was competing for the final spot or two on the receiver depth chart in Green Bay, and his injury could wind up being the deciding factor.

    08/15/16TEAndrew QuarlessSuspensionSUSPENDQuarless (suspension) signed a deal with the Lions on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    With tight ends Eric Ebron and Brandon Pettigrew both recovering from injuries, the Lions are facing serious depth issues at tight end for this coming season. And while Quarless will still be suspended for the first two games of the regular season, he had a solid stint with the Packers and would be a formidable option for the team should neither Ebron nor Pettigrew be ready by Week 3. He is eligible to start practicing with the team immediately.

    (Updated 08/15/2016)
    08/10/16WRTy MontgomeryAnklePROBABLEMontgomery caught one pass for seven yards on five targets in Thursday's preseason game against Oakland.

    Just removed from the PUP list last week, Montgomery has played in both of Green Bay's preseason games, but he only has two catches for 14 yards on eight targets. While likely just competing for the fourth on fifth spot on the depth chart at wideout, the 2015 third-round selection could emerge as an option to return kicks and/or punts. It's also not out of the question that he could eventually push Davante Adams or Jared Abbrederis for playing time at wide receiver.
